Malaysia boasts of mixed languages, cultures, religions and cuisines. From vibrant cities, stunning architecture and some of the most incredible nature Southeast Asia has to offer. You’ll get the best of two completely different worlds: the peninsula is an escape for bustling cities while finding a balance of beautiful tropical islands that are great for snorkeling and diving. On the other side, it is famed more for its nature of lush rainforests where Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain of Southeast Asia lies.

Where adventure, culture and tranquility collide, you’ll truly find your paradise here.

  1. Asia Wanderlust: Thailand to Malaysia by Eastern & Oriental Express 7D6N

    close

    Discover the ‘real’ South East Asia as you travel between Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express. With 2-nights aboard one of the world’s most luxurious trains, this package is perfect for those wanting to immerse themselves in the colours and flavours of Thailand and Malaysia and truly know the people.

    To step onboard is to step inside another world…

    Your journey through the exotic East begins in Bangkok, Thailand, a city of contrasts with action at every turn. Venture away from the city to the floating and railway markets that are the lifeblood of the country. The real Bangkok is away from the flashing neon lights.

    Then, it’s all aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express, where you will slow down and step into a world of classic glamour. Over three unforgettable days, journey deep into the countryside of Thailand and Malaysia – and deep into the past. Travel through lush green rice paddies and limestone massifs and spend time in remote villages, where you’ll have the chance to meet and get to know the locals. Learn the fascinating WWII history of the River Kwai and Death Railway, take a traditional Thai cooking class and visit a working fruit and rubber plantation – these are just some of the immersive cultural experiences that await. 

    Your rail journey of a lifetime ends in Kuala Lumpur, the vibrant capital of Malaysia. Much more than gleaming skyscrapers and colonial architecture, Kuala Lumpur will enthral you with a melting-pot of temples and shrines, expansive shopping malls and an abundance of gastronomical delights from hawker stalls and cafes to Michelin-star restaurants. 

    In addition to the Eastern & Oriental Express, you’ll stay in some of the world’s best hotels: the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, and RuMa Hotel & Residences. Aboard the train, enjoy sumptuous feasts served on silverware, world-class champagne, wine and cocktails and jazz-club music lingering in the air. The internationally renowned chefs and bartenders will tantalise you with the colours and flavours of East meets West. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are sure to rival any dish from the world’s best restaurants.

    This ultra-luxe 7-day package includes 6-nights’ luxury accommodation on a twin share basis (including 2 nights aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express). Gourmet meals and beverages are included as specified along with carefully curated off board excursions, English-language guiding and transfers. 

    All aboard the Eastern & Oriental Express for a timeless adventure that will take you to the very soul of Thailand and Malaysia. Go beyond the tourist traps and get to know the people that call this beautiful part of the world home.
